PRESS STATEMENT DEFENCE MINISTER MAJ GEN BASHIR SALIHI MAGASHI, RtD RECEIVES COAS'S OPERATIONAL BRIEFS FROM FRONTLINE.

 
 The MInister of Defence Maj Gen Bashir Salihi Magashi has officially received in audience the Chief of  Army Staff,Lt Gen Yusuf Tukur Buratai who reportedly gathered  came on Operationl briesfs.
This  was sequel to his return from the North east where he led Counter terrorism Operstions for over two months in the trenches. Buratai's visit to the Minister of Defence in less than  24 hours after briefing  the Commander-in-Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari at the  State  house was strategically imperative  with a view to ending the menace of Boko Haram terrorism in the  country.    The Special Assistant Media and Publicity to the Minister, Mohammad Abdulkadri  reports that the closed door interface between  the Minister and the Chief of Army Staff lasted for over one hour. Although , the blow -by- blow accounts  of the operational briefs by Lt Gen Buratai to the Minister of Defence  were not disclosed to the Media, but it is implied that it cannot  be far fetched from what are trending  in the public and Media domains. They included, the fire powers of the troops that neutralised 1,429 Boko Haram terrorists  and the arrest of the informants of the  criminal elements as well as decisive  and aggressive posture and high   morale of the troops in prosecuting the new battle plans under his command. Again, part of the issues supposedly  discussed  in the security  briefs covered  classified informations and strategic  battle plans which cannot  be publicised so as not to compromise and undermine  the technicality and  tacticalility of the  war  proceedings.
